Who We Are

The Office of Technology Evaluation (OTE) analyzes U.S. export data from the Census Automated Export System (AES) and BIS license application data to inform export policy decisions.

Our analysis primarily covers dual-use Commerce Control List (CCL) items which have both a civilian and military or proliferation-related end-use. Included are licensed, license exception, and unlicensed export transactions subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). In addition, OTE assesses BIS license applications, including approved, denied and returned determinations. 

OTE uses the findings from its analysis to educate industry at AES seminars on proper reporting of items subject to the EAR in the AES.
